    I'm a huge Nora Roberts fan, I know she is a romance writer but she does it in a classy way not smutty! I was just wondering if any1 else reads her and what are some good book by her?

    Thank-goodness someone else likes her! Would you believe, I was just about to start a thread with the same idea you had? lol The books are kind of smutty, but they are so well written, I can never put them down. My favorite was the story of the Irish sisters. Born in Fire, Born in Ice, and Born in Shame. The Chesapeake series was my second favorite too. (I loved Ethan and Grace!)

    I loved the one with Kate and Brody! But Sacred Sins was pretty awesome too. It was kind of a suspense, but with mystery.

    I haven't read any of hers under that name yet either, I've always thought about it though.
    I don't think I could even begin to list all the ones I've read, but off the top of my head:
    Born in Ice, Born in Fire, Sacred Sins, The Chesapeake series (I can't remember the 3 titles) Daring to Dream, Considering Kate, The McGreggor Brides, and that trilogy with the three witches on some island ( I can't remember the titles, I just remember two of their names were Nell and Ripley!)

    We're starting our own conversation here! Considering Kate was amazing. I loved it, especially because she was a dancer, and I love to dance. But still the romance was definitely there! At first I was afraid the Chesapeake series would be bad because it was from a guys POV, but I was wrong. Cameron, Ethan, Philip ( I think), and Seth Quinn were so much fun to read. The first was kinda smutty though!

    I don' think I could pick a favorite though!

    I just checked out Born in Ice and ummmmm......I don't remember its in the car..he he I'm so absentminded!!

    Its intresting I don't think she has anyother books in the guy POV, it would be a nice change...hmmm...... that must have been hard for a woman to get in a guys mind setting!

    I guess I have to go check those out!

    Born in Ice was very interesting. It was definitely different, but since Born in Shame came after it, I got to see what happend to Brianna (I think it was) and Grayson!
    The three sisters...was that the one with Nell, Ripley and Mia as the witches?

    :o :o OMG! OMG!!! I FINALLY FOUND MY PLACE IN THE WORLD!!!! I'm so happyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ^_^ :LOL: ^_^
    Well.. so far i've read River's End, Carolina Moon, The Irish Trilogy and Sea Swept and Rising Tides! ^___^
    Gooosh! The only thing that stops me from reading her books is that i rarely see it here in Brazil... There are a few translated to portuguese, but i rather read in English. ;) However, -_- -_- her books in English are so expensive here and so difficult to find! -_- :(

    Sad, isn't it?
    I'm LĂ­via, BTW.. You can call me Liv.. ^_^

    Welcome to the romance world Evil Temptress (lovely name)!
    Hooray for you for remembering Sea Swept, Rising Tides...and so forth. Thank-you!
    And yeah my two sisters and I are huge Nora Roberts fans. That's probably one of the few things, but we're those romantics at heart!
    Spygurl~Tell me how you liked Born in Ice...and I'd recommend Born in Shame after it!
